Knowledge of Probate Law

First and foremost, it is essential to look for a lawyer who focuses on this specific area of the law. Hiring an experienced probate attorney will ensure that you have the expertise needed to navigate the probate process efficiently. You should choose an attorney with years of experience in this area and a solid track record in settling estates. In addition, you need an attorney who keeps up to date on changes in relevant tax law and understands the importance of fiduciary income tax planning to minimize taxes.

Reputation & Experience in Probate Cases

Another important consideration is the lawyer’s reputation and experience. Research the lawyer’s background, read reviews from past clients, and ask for references. A reputable probate lawyer will have a history of success in settling estates and will have positive feedback from clients. Additionally, experience is vital, so choose a lawyer who has been settling estates in Connecticut for years. Attorney Lisa E. Wnuck has been administering estates throughout the state of Connecticut for decades. Attorney Elizabeth A. Fisher has years of experience settling estates in probate as well.

Communication With Involved Parties

Communication is also an important consideration when selecting a probate lawyer. You need to find a lawyer who will keep you informed throughout the process, answer your questions promptly and accurately, and provide updates. For a smooth and stress-free experience, you will want an attorney who is responsive, attentive, and with whom it is easy to communicate.  In addition, his or her office should offer a digital platform for you to upload and exchange information online securely.

Experienced Staff

Probate paralegals handle much of the work throughout the estate settlement process.  For this reason, you want to ensure the law office you choose has experienced probate paralegals on staff. It helps, of course, if they’re also friendly and easy to work with, like the staff at Heritage Law.
